For most businesses today, data is a critical asset. Many companies rely heavily on the data in their systems and databases to conduct core operations, track interactions with customers, fulfill orders, manage inventory, run payroll, analyze performance, and more. However, when it comes time to migrate or upgrade to a new system, one of the major concerns for many businesses is the fear of losing important historical data in the transition.
The prospect of having to start over with none of their legacy customer, sales, or other vital records is daunting and can prevent businesses from adopting better software, platforms, and systems. Even if the current system is outdated, manual, or inefficient, the risk of permanently losing years of data is too great for some companies to leap. As a result, businesses often opt to stay with familiar yet inferior legacy systems solely to keep access to old reports, records, and data history.
Migrating Key Data Types:
When switching business systems, some of the most crucial data to migrate include:
Customer data like names, contact information, order history, and any notes or custom fields. Maintaining this information ensures customers don’t need to re-enter it and preserves relationship history.
All order details should transfer over, including products purchased, quantities, pricing, taxes, discounts, status, etc. This maintains order records and ensures continuity.
Product listings, pricing, quantities, and all inventory-related data need to be migrated to keep stock levels, valuations, and reporting accurate.
Sales metrics like revenue, transactions, products sold, and sales representative data should be imported to maintain sales records and reporting.
General ledger, accounts receivable/payable, expenses, etc. Financial data is critical for continuity in reporting and accounting, so migrating it without errors is key.
The new system should allow importing these data types from the legacy system via CSV, API, or another standard format. Work closely with the integration team to cleanly map and import each data type into the appropriate fields and tables. Test thoroughly to validate no data loss or corruption. Support staff during the transition to address any migration issues.
